About X-Perl UnitFrames

Bug Reporting

Please use the Ticketing System on WoWAce Here and avoid posting bugs using comments on Curse because they're difficult to track and they will probably get lost.

Use a good error catcher (like BugSack from files.wowace.com) and provide the full error text, and give as much information as possible to recreate the problem. Don't assume We know what you're talking about with some three word report.

Introduction

Perl, with Extra stuff. Much enchanced from Nymbia's Perl UnitFrames, and a complete replacement for Blizzard's default unit frames, including raid frames and raid tools, with little remaining of the original Nymbia code.

  • Range Finder (combined with optional health check and/or debuff check) for all frames based on spell or item range test.
  • HoT Monitor will highlight units clearly that have ''your own'' active Heal over Time spells. Regardless of how many other heal over time buffs are on the raid members, you can keep track of your own ones and when they expire.
  • Debuff Highlighting in standard debuff colours on all friendly frames. Priority given to show debuffs that ''you'' can cure first.
  • Raid Frames, buff icons, MT list units and some other portions or X-Perl are Created on demand. Saving a lot of time and memory at system startup. Defering the creation of many parts of X-Perl to when they are actually required. And of course, most often outside of raids they are never required and are never created.
  • Raid Target icon support for Target, Target's Target, MT Targets.
  • Raid Tooltip will show combat rezzers available (druids with Rebirth ready (or very soon available) and any normal rezzers out of combat) if you bring up tooltip of a dead person.
  • In-combat indicators for all units.
  • 3D Portraits for player, pet, target, focus, party. Optional. Of course this may degrade your framerate somewhat because you are displaying more 3D character models that without this option. But some like it pretty, and it does look cool.
  • Red and Green combat flashes for frames when player, pet, target, party, partypets, raid take damage/heals. Useful indication of things happening.
  • Added '''time left''' on party member/target buffs/debuffs when in a raid, these depend somewhat on CTRA sending appropriate information over the addon channel, although some of it can be determined at run time by X-Perl, when a player gets a buff for example, we know how long it should last, and therefor when it should expire.
  • Totally new options window including all X-Perl options and access via minimap icon and the /xperl splash command.
  • Configurable colours for borders and backgrounds. Including class coloured names, and configurable reaction colours.

Much care has been taken with code size, memory load, memory usage per cycle and so on. LuaProfiler/OnEvent mods used extensively and regularly to ensure that X-Perl does not do more work than is absolutely necessary.

Assists View

Will show anyone from raid assising you with your target, and can also show healers or all plus known enemies targetting you.

Tooltips for the same also available (on player and target frames) if you prefer to not use the main window.

MT Targets

Replaces CTRA MT Targets window, and doubles as a replacement for the Perl RaidFrames warrior targets.

Indicator shows which target you are on.

Frames will be coloured to show if tanks have duplicate targets.

Casting Monitor

(WORK IN PROGRESS)

Shows selected classes (defaults to healer classes) in a list (much like the MT List), but with some differences.

Shows mana bars and cast bars on left. Their targets on right. Health bar as normal, but a secondary small red bar on targets which shows the maximum single hit this unit has received since entering combat. The secondary bar will extend downwards from their current HP level down to as far as zero.

A green name on the targets indicates this is the same target that you have. You can click on casters or their targets as expected.

For druids, right clicking on a caster will cast Innervate on them.

For shamans, right clicking on a caster will cast Mana Tide Totem. Check the * indicator to see if they're in your group.

All bars can be re-sized in X-Perl main options (Monitor section).

Totals can be toggled (from the 'T' minibutton at top of frame) which gives overview of raid mana status.

Raid Admin

(WORK IN PROGRESS)

Save/Load raid roster setups Only does direct save and load for the moment, but more to come (templates and such).

Item Check

Replacement for /raitem /radur /raresist /rareg. Use the old commands before, or drop items in the left item list.

Query button will perform /raitem on all ticked items (query always includes dur and resists) and you can then view and review all the results whenever, without having to re-query each item.

Includes everyone in raid, so you don't have to work out who doesn't have items, it'll list them with 0 instead of no entry.

Active Scanner to check raid member's equipment for the item selected. So you can be sure that people actually have the item worn (Onyxia Cloak for example), without having to go round single target inspecting everyone who 'forgot' to install CTRA for the 50th raid in a row.

Grim Reaper

Removed from X-Perl, but continues as it's own standalone Ace mod.

[http://www.wowace.com/projects/grim-reaper/]

More Buffing Features

Can be found in my new universal buffing mod, ZOMGBuffs

[http://www.wowace.com/projects/zomgbuffs/]

3.7.5 Release (r860/r859)
1.You can now disable pvp marks on the frames.
2.TTT Frame, FocusTarget and PetTarget Debuffs are now enabled and disabled correctly.
3.You can now enable Target's Target Debuffs independently from its Buffs.

    X-Perl was once again updated, always make sure you check Ace!

    http://www.wowace.com/addons/xperl/ (Go to Files)

    @ mkcorp, did you try the latest update and see if that bug was fixed? r707 being the newest.
    @ Azerty95, I did this myself by deleting the string for Priests in the Player .lua file.

    yeah, but still "Fix special bar options not working Undocking bars is still not implemented."  :(  hopefully soon. wasn't the dk rune bar moveable back before 5.0.4? is it different for the shadow orbs?

    also, is there an API for calling up shadow orbs? i'd love to just throw them into clcinfo and call it a day! thanks for the hard work so far though dev's

    r703

    Looks like Groups number I'm in is not refreshing on my portrait when in raid and switching groups.

  • #7020

    Hi

    I havent seen this error posted yet, but I see it a lot on all my toons. Especially today doing the hogger-smashing on Darkmoon Island on my warlock. The graphics lagged extremely probably because of the error logging.

    Is there a way to turn some parameters off to get rid of it until it is eventually fixed?

  • #7025

    That's already fixed in an alpha build

  • #7019

    To all the players who get chat spam with Raid# class ID and such, thats not X-perl, but Tidy-Plates and that is solved in the last version.

  • #7029

    Thanks for the clarification bud

  • #7018

    The MT windows won't show automatically. I have to disable and enable it and if you change the list you have to do the same.

  • #7022

    http://www.mediafire.com/?0bguxy0rd0uekt9

    after unzipping take XPerl_RaidHelper.lua and place it into ../addons/XPerl_RaidHelper  The file change.rtf outlines the changes made since the version of the file included with the current download (You don't need to keep this unless you want to read it).

    It will fix needing to toggle the option or reload your UI in order to get the tank targets frame to show and the "use blizzard MT Targets" option is extended to use the new LFG role system.  This file also allows for tanks from other realms to be placed into the frame.  I posted a link to this a while ago, about a page back.

  • #7017

    Hi, lately whilst playing with this addon, the focus frames keep messing up, either being all blurry and not showing the focus, or showing as if my focus is another target, and the focus' target stays the same aswell, never changing to new players thats being targetted, any idea how to fix this?

  • #7016

    @ooblushy88oo : How did you disable the bar orbs of shadow priest? I searched but not find how to do this, thank you.

  • #7015

    Hi, i am not able to use raid profile (game menu/interface/raid profiles). As off healer on my Priest i heal on that ( default blizzard frame ). When i turn X-Perl off it works fine. Can you please fix that, thanks a lot : )

  • #7013

    Everytime I join a party or raid, or create a party or raid, im bombarded by text in my chat log saying for example Raid2 <A characters name> <A characters class> <Count of that class> E.G Raid2 Ferid Warrior WARRIOR1

    Anyone know if this is a bug, a setting etc? I have no idea how to stop it and it wasn't happening before I updated from the last Cata release.

    Party panel will not show up when in group after patch 5.0, other than that, no other major problems experienced, just like to see that get fixed.
